Great location, very modern property, all representatives were fabulous. Excellent safety precautions in place! They worked diligently to sanitize things throughout the day and night!
While food is certainly in abundance we were limited to certain items repeated each day that were 'good to us'. Much of the food was just not to our liking. If your party books 2 rooms try to get them adjoining, at least then when you hear every conversation through that door it will be people you know, otherwise you will hear someone else's baby or party or TV show.
As expected, brilliant
